8 glassware BOROSILICATE GLASS 3.3 LBG 3.3 is a borosilicate glass with a minimum content in silica of 80% and a low expansion coefficient ( K-1) included in the 3.3 borosilicate group, as defined in ISO 3585 standard. It is used in products where chemical and mechanical resistance is to be combined with resistance to sudden temperature changes. This particular combination of properties makes this type of glass the most used in labware. Physical and chemical properties Linear expansion coefficient 20/300 ºC) K-1 Strain point 520 ºC Annealing point 560 ± 10 ºC Softening point 820 ± 10 ºC Density 2.23 ± 0.02 g/cm3 Hydrolytic resistance (according to ISO 719, water at 98 ºC) Class 1 Hydrolytic resistance (according to ISO 720, water at 121 ºC) Class 1 Resistance to acids (according to ISO 1776, DIN 12116) Class 1 Resistance to alkalis (according to ISO 695) Class 2 Typical composition 80,4% in weight SiO2 13,0% in weight B 2 O 3 4,2% in weight Na 2 O 2,4% in weight Al 2 O 3 Technical specifications of LBG 3.3 glassware

18 LIQUID HANDLING our products Instruments and consumables for laboratory liquid handling

19 LIQUID HANDLING our products EASY : our LABBOX brand of liquid handling From the simple to the most sofisticated solution EASY 5 EASY 9 EASY 8 EASY 10 mini-micropipette EASY 30+ Fixed volume micropipette EASY 40+ Variable volume micropipette EASY 40 Smart Variable volume micropipette REVOLUTION Electronic micropipette EASY 60+ Electronic filling device EASY 20 Bottle top dispenser

20 Standard Line tips The best price our products Premium Line tips Human DNA free Certified DNAse, RNAse e PCR Inhibitors free Dyes free Sterile and non-sterile available LIQUID HANDLING Premium Line tips with filter Human DNA free Certified DNAse, RNAse e PCR Inhibitors free Dyes free Sterile and non-sterile available

21 our products LIQUID HANDLING The sample retention within the tip is a important aspect of handling issues. Usually technicians were applying silicon inside tips but this may give contamination problems. labbox Premium Line ULR tips are manufactured with a new polymer (Novelle-Polypropylene) producing a slippery wall where no sample is retained. This polymer give a better performance once autoclaved. This method reduce 85% the sample retention and lower in more than 75% the standard volume deviation. They are specially recommended for molecular biology application, specially in DNA analysis, quantitative PCR and protein handling. Available with filter and without filter. Premium Line ULTRA LOW RETENTION tips: the best accuracy for critical molecular biology routine

To prevent thermal stress cracks on porcelain ware, labbox strongly recommends a heating/cooling rate not to exceed 200 ºC/hour. Resistance to Chemical Action: The resistance to acids and alkalis is excellent, except for hydrofluoric acid. Technical specifications of porcelain Prolonging labware life: -Follow gradual heating and cooling rates. -Use an oven or hot plate as an intermediate step when quicker heating/cooling rates are required. -Gradually increase flame intensity when using a gas burner. -Avoid contact of heated ware with a cold surface. -Carefully inspect your labware prior to each use -Do not use any product that appears defective.

46 THERMOREGULATION, COMBUSTION and CALCINATION our products Made of pure aluminum oxyde (AL 2 O 3 at 99.6%) Used in metallurgy and other fields where high temperatures combined with high chemical resistance are required. It can be used in reducing or oxidizing atmospheres. Inert in hydrogen or carbonic atmospheres. Suitable for melting glass, borosilicate glass included. Recommended to with refractory metals such as molybdenum, platinum, tungsten, tantalum, rhodium and iridium. To avoid cracks due to thermal stress on alumina, labbox recommended the speed of warming / cooling does not exceed 150 ° C / hour. Technical specifications of alumina
